The Cheapest High-Yield Stocks within the S&P 500

High yielding dividend stocks are wonderful if you are looking for a fast cash payback. At the capital markets are 417 high yield stocks traded, but not all have a sustainable dividend history, or they are too expensive.

In order to find some attractive high yield stocks, I screened the popular S&P 500 by stocks with a dividend yield over 5 percent as well as a low P/E ratio of less than 15. The index has 24 high yields but only 10 companies have a low P/E ratio. Below the results is one stock with a double digit yield; four stocks are recommend to buy.
